    ::The Matches::
    Here's a detailed description of the characters with star ratings on their core
    stats, Power Shots, difficulties and much more.
    
    Starting with the Junior class:
    
    Junior Class 4th Rank:
    
    ==Sophia== >Singles and Doubles<
    Power: *
    Angle: *
    Spin: *
    Speed: *
    Offensive PS: N/A
    Defensive PS: N/A
    Difficulty to beat: *
    
    The basic starter-off player to get you familiarising with this game. She is an
    extremely easy person to beat, so don't take too long on her.
    
    ==Meg== >Doubles<
    Power: *
    Angle: *
    Spin: *
    Speed: *
    Offensive PS: N/A
    Defensive PS: N/A
    Difficulty to beat (With Sophia): *
    
    The pushover doubles partner for the pushover 4th rank Sophia. Enough said.
    
    Junior Class 3rd rank:
    ==Mason== >Singles and Doubles<
    Power: **
    Angle: *1/2
    Spin: *
    Speed: *
    Offensive PS: N/A
    Defensive PS: N/A
    Difficulty to beat: *
    
    Just watch out for his power when you're a junior. Act quickly and you should
    be able to find weaknesses in his game, then exploit that to win.
    
    ==Chad== >Doubles<
    Power: **
    Angle: *1/2
    Spin: *
    Speed: *
    Offensive PS: N/A
    Defensive PS: N/A
    Difficulty to beat (With Mason): *
    
    Just use the same strategies you used on Mason. For doubles, just hit cross-
    court and down the line and you will be fine.
    
    Junior Class 2nd rank:
    ==Sasha== >Singles and Doubles<
    Power: *
    Angle: **
    Spin: **
    Speed: *
    Offensive PS: N/A
    Defensive PS: N/A
    Difficulty to beat: *
    
    Has a bit technique!! She usually uses slice, and sometimes may pull out a
    random lob. Just don't go too close to the net and you should be fine beating
    Sasha.
    
    ==Sylvia== >Doubles<
    Power: *
    Angle: *
    Spin: *
    Speed: **
    Offensive PS: N/A
    Defensive PS: N/A
    Difficulty to beat (With Sasha): *
    
    She is a great hump-a-lump. However, she can run. FAST. Just make her run a lot
    and you should be fine.
    
    Junior class Top rank:
    ==Chris== >Singles and Doubles<
    Power: *
    Angle: **
    Spin: *
    Speed: **
    Offensive PS: N/A
    Defensive PS: N/A
    Difficulty to beat: *1/2
    
    I hate people with speed. However, Chris isn't TOO fast, so that is okay. Just
    keep hitting the ball around the court and Chris will go down. FAST.
    
    ==Kyle== >Doubles<
    Power: **
    Angle: *
    Spin: *
    Speed: **
    Offensive PS: N/A
    Defensive PS: N/A
    Difficulty to beat (With Chris): *
    
    Junior class is easy. So are Kyle and Chris. Have fun.
    
    Senior class:
    
    Senior class 4th rank:
    ===Gary=== >Singles and Doubles< (3rd rank in Doubles)
    Power: ***
    Angle: *1/2
    Spin: *
    Speed: *
    Offensive PS: N/A
    Defensive PS: N/A
    Difficulty to beat: *
    
    Easier than some of the Junior class people. Your defensive power shot (You can
    only get that for now) should be enough. Hit it around the court, and Gary will
    be easily beaten.
    
    ===Shawn=== >Doubles< (4th rank doubles)
    Power: **
    Angle: *
    Spin: *1/2
    Speed: *1/2
    Offensive PS: N/A
    Defensive PS: N/A
    Difficulty to beat (With Linda): *1/2
    
    Pretty easy, just hit the ball and let your double partner do the work. If
    you're a volleyer, lob, drop shot and smash as often as you can.
    
    ===Linda=== >Doubles< (4th rank doubles)
    Power: *
    Angle: *
    Spin: *1/2
    Speed: **1/2
    Offensive PS: N/A
    Defensive PS: N/A
    Difficulty to beat (With Shawn): *1/2
    
    Use strategies for Shawn
    
    Senior class 3rd rank:
    ===Jet=== >Doubles< (3rd rank doubles)
    Power: **
    Angle: **
    Spin: **
    Speed: **
    Offensive PS: N/A
    Defensive PS: N/A
    Difficulty to beat (With Gary): *1/2
    
    A very solid unit. Coming with Gary really packs a punch. However, just play
    your best and you should be fine.
    
    ===Kyoko=== >Singles and Doubles< (2nd rank Doubles)
    Power: *1/2
    Angle: ***
    Spin: **
    Speed: **
    Offensive PS: N/A
    Defensive PS: N/A
    Difficulty to beat: *1/2
    
    So cute!!! Kyoko is cute, but she is also easy to beat. She goes along the same
    lines as Sasha. Slice + lobs. Just use the same strategies you used for Sasha.
    
    Senior Class 2nd rank:
    ===Micki=== >Doubles<
    Power: *1/2
    Angle: ***
    Spin: **
    Speed: **
    Offensive PS: N/A
    Defensive PS: N/A
    Difficulty to beat (With Kyoko): *
    
    Two times Technique!! With your well-trained Doubles-Partner, you should easily
    PWN these two.
    
    ===Roy=== >Singles and Doubles< (Top rank Doubles) (Varsity 4th rank doubles)
    Power: ***
    Angle: ***
    Spin: **
    Speed: **
    Offensive PS: Power Shot
    Defensive PS: Running Save
    Difficulty to beat: **
    
    A very solid player. Very solid. He also has power shots. The good thing to do
    would be to get the High-Power Shot (Level 3 Muscle) and use that against him.
    That would give you a huge advantage. Otherwise, just use level 1 Power Shot
    like he does.
    
    Senior Top Rank:
    ===Emi=== >Singles and Doubles< (Varsity 3rd rank doubles)
    Power: **
    Angle: **
    Spin: **
    Speed: ***1/2
    Offensive PS: Curve Shot
    Defensive PS: Quick Save
    Difficulty to beat: **1/2
    
    Emi is ANNOYING. She is fast. She's left-handed too, so watch out for that.
    Challenge her with decent stats and a decent power shot would be the key to
    winning.
    
    Varsity Class:
    
    Varsity Class 4th rank:
    ====Paula==== >Singles and Doubles< (2nd rank Doubles)
    Power: ***
    Angle: ***
    Spin: **
    Speed: ***1/2
    Offensive PS: Tackle Shot
    Defensive PS: Quick Save
    Difficulty to beat: **
    
    Paula is pretty easy. Just hit the ball around the court and you should come
    out fine.
    
    ====Skipper==== >Doubles<
    Power: ***
    Angle: ***
    Spin: **
    Speed: ***
    Offensive PS: Tackle Shot
    Defensive PS: Quick Save
    Difficulty to beat (With Roy): **
    
    Quite easy. Just watch out for the fast power shot. That's all.
    
    Varity Class 3rd rank:
    ====Flit==== >Doubles<
    Power: *
    Angle: **
    Spin: *****
    Speed: **
    Offensive PS: Slider Shot
    Defensive PS: Quick Save
    Difficulty to beat (With Emi): **
    
    Spin doctor!!! He has basically maximum spin. Just be careful and you should be
    fine.
    
    ====Tori==== >Singles and Doubles< (Top rank Doubles)
    Power: **
    Angle: ****
    Spin: **
    Speed: ***
    Offensive PS: Control Shot
    Defensive PS: Running Save
    Difficulty to beat: **
    
    Tori just has excellent control. Just keep concentrated and hit the ball hard
    at her.
    
    Varsity Class 2nd Rank:
    
    ====Whisker==== >Singles and Doubles<
    Power: ***1/2
    Angle: **
    Spin: **
    Speed: ***
    Offensive PS: High-Power Shot
    Defensive PS: Running Save
    Difficulty to beat: *
    
    He is strong, but slow and have little skill. Easy.
    
    Varsity Class Top rank:
    ====Elroy==== >Singles and Doubles<
    Power: ***1/2
    Angle: ***
    Spin: ***1/2
    Speed: ****
    Offensive PS: Blizzard Shot
    Defensive PS: Typhoon Save
    Difficulty to beat: ***
    
    Elroy is one the best players in the game. He has good everything, really. He
    is, no doubt one of the hardest characters to beat. He has Blizzard Shot, which
    is also one of the best Power Shots in the game. Just do your best, and you
    should be able to overcome him.
    
    Island Open:
    
    Singles:
    =====Barb===== >Singles only<
    Power: **
    Angle: ***1/2
    Spin: ***
    Speed: ***
    Offensive PS: High-Power Shot
    Defensive PS: Bubble Save
    Difficulty to beat: *
    
    After your encounter with Elroy, Barb is a cinch. Just be careful, that's all.
    
    =====Sass===== >Singles only<
    Power: ****
    Angle: **
    Spin: **
    Speed: **
    Offensive PS: Flying Shot
    Defensive PS: Quick-Step Save
    Difficulty to beat: *
    
    Another easy ass person to beat. Just don't let him "over"power you.
    
    =====Elroy===== >Singles only<
    Power: ***1/2
    Angle: ***
    Spin: ***1/2
    Speed: ****
    Offensive PS: Blizzard Shot
    Defensive PS: Typhoon Save
    Difficulty to beat: ***1/2
    
    Repeat procedure for before. He's just a little bit harder this time...
    
    =====Willy===== >Singles and Doubles<
    Power: *1/2
    Angle: ****
    Spin: *****
    Speed: ***1/2
    Offensive PS: Summoner Shot
    Defensive PS: Hand-Power Save
    Difficulty to beat: ****
    
    I hate spin. I really do. One solution. Use power, and don't let him fool you.
    
    Doubles:
    =====Chas=====
    Power: **
    Angle: ****
    Spin: **
    Speed: ****
    Offensive PS: High-Power Shot
    Defensive PS: Superswift Save
    Difficulty to beat (With Mel): **1/2
    
    Chas is fast, but he is weak. Just play him (and Mel) around the court and then
    look for oppotunities and play powerful power shots.
    
    =====Mel=====
    Power: **
    Angle: ***
    Spin: ***
    Speed: ****
    Offensive PS: Slider Shot
    Defensive PS: High Jump Save
    Difficulty to beat (With Chas): **1/2
    
    Mel is a bit more annoying than Chas because of her spin and the fact that she
    loves to volley, however, she is still pretty easy. Just lob often and hit
    hard.
    
    =====Dweezil=====
    Power: ***1/2
    Angle: ***1/2
    Spin: ***
    Speed: **1/2
    Offensive PS: Stunner Shot
    Defensive PS: Quick Step Save
    Difficulty to beat (With Mynx): **
    
    Dweezil is the Champion of the previous Island Open. I do not know how. He is
    crap. Very slow, only having good power to redeem himself. The power shot he
    has is ok. Just hit the ball, and Dweezil's speed would be his killer.
    
    =====Mynx=====
    Power: **1/2
    Angle: ****
    Spin: ***
    Speed: ***
    Offensive PS: Flashflop Shot
    Defensive PS: Quick Step Save
    Difficulty to beat (With Dweezil): **
    
    Mynx is a little better than Dweezil stat-wise, however, her power shot really
    lets her down. It's one of those shots that cannot power shot ace the opponent.
    However, without power shots, she is a lot better than Dweezil.
    
    =====Sheri=====
    Power: ***1/2
    Angle: ****
    Spin: ***1/2
    Speed: ****
    Offensive PS: Gyro Shot
    Defensive PS: Illusory Save
    Difficulty to beat (With Willy): ***1/2
    
    She's is a bery good player. If I made a patch with Sheri using a better power
    shot than she is using right now (Gyro Shot is crap), such as High-Power Shot,
    she would kick butt. Just use your usual tactics, and look for times when she
    stuffs up.
    
    MARIO WORLD:
    
    The Mario characters have unique power shots without names. I shall just give
    them names myself. The defensive power shots used by Mario characters are like
    low-level offensive Power-Shots, so be careful
    
    ======Mario======
    Power: **** => ****1/2 when starred
    Angle: **** => ***** when starred
    Spin: ***1/2 => **** when starred
    Speed: **** => ***** when starred
    Offensive PS: High-Power Hammer Shot
    Defensive PS: Low-level Curve Shot
    Difficulty to beat: **** => ***** when starred
    
    Mario is the best Mario character. No questions asked. He has good power shots,
    and awesome stats. Just use your regular tactics.
    
    ======Peach======
    Power: *** => ***1/2 when starred
    Angle: ****1/2 => ***** when starred
    Spin: ***1/2 => **** when starred
    Speed: ***1/2 => **** when starred
    Offensive PS: Loveheart Shot
    Defensive PS: Loveheart Lob
    Difficulty to beat: *****
    
    I hate Peach. With all my fury. I hate her power shot. When you are hit by it,
    you spin like crazy for something like 2 seconds, while she just pops the ball
    somewhere you can get it. I hate Peach. Just hit the ball where she can't
    reach. Bleaugh.
    
    ======Luigi======
    Power: **** => ***** when starred
    Angle: **** => ****1/2 when starred
    Spin: ****
    Speed: **** => ***** when starred
    Offensive PS: Spinstar Hammer Shot
    Defensive PS: Suck in shot
    Difficulty to beat: ****1/2
    
    Luigi rushes to the net. Just lob him or topspin the ball around him to claim
    victory.
    
    ======Waluigi======
    Power: **** => ****1/2 when starred
    Angle: ***1/2 => **** when starred
    Spin: ****
    Speed: ****
    Offensive PS: Super Slider Shot
    Defensive PS: Swimming Save
    Difficulty to beat: ***
    
    Use the same tactics for Luigi. You will also find that Waluigi is much easier,
    too.
    
    ======Donkey Kong======
    Power: *****
    Angle: ****1/2
    Spin: ** => *** when starred
    Speed: **
    Offensive PS: Barrel Shot
    Defensive PS: Banana Save
    Difficulty to beat: ***
    
    Easy. Powerful and easy. Just have great power and angle and DK goes DOWN!!
    
    ======Bowser======
    Power: *****
    Angle: *****
    Spin: *1/2 => **1/2 when starred
    Speed: *1/2 => ** when starred
    Offensive PS: Flame Shot
    Defensive PS: Rolling Shell Save
    Difficulty to beat: **1/2
    
    Even easier than DK because of his lower speed. Use the same tactics for DK.
    
    Whoo. That's all the characters.
    
    ::The Power Shots::
    Here are the power shots and their requirements (As your PS stats). The power,
    is the power, spin is the spin, angle is the angle and after-effect is what
    happens when the opponent returns the ball.
    
    The experience points you need:
    Level 1: 50
    Level 2: 150
    Level 3: 300
    Level 4: 500
    Level 5: 800
    Level 6: 1200
    Level 7: 1600
    Level 8: 2000
    Level 9: 2400
    Level 10: 3000
    
    ==Offensive Power Shots==
    
    >Power Shot<
    Requirement: 1 Muscle
    Power: 2/5
    Spin: 1/5 (Top Spin)
    Angle: 2.5/5
    After-effect: Lightly pushes the opponent back a bit.
    supercaptor's comments: It's a decent starting shot to beat some of the lower
    level opponents. However, as you progress on, this shot is not enough.
    
    >High-Power Shot<
    Requirement: 3 Muscle
    Power: 3.5/5
    Spin: 0.5/5 (Whatever spin the last hit was used)
    Angle: 3/5
    After effect: Pushes the opponent quite a bit.
    supercaptor's comments: Another decent shot, and this is enough to beat the
    game on Normal.
    
    >Curve Shot<
    Requirement: 1 Spin
    Power: 2.5/5
    Spin: 3.5/5 (Top Spin)
    Angle: 3/5
    After effect: Opponent spins around uncontrollably
    supercaptor's comments: A decent shot for starters.
    
    >Slider Shot<
    Requirement: 3 Spin
    Power: 3/5
    Spin: 4.5/5 (Top Spin)
    Angle: 4/5
    After effect: Opponent spins around uncontrollably
    supercaptor's comments: A very useful shot that can last you through the whole
    game.
    
    >Control Shot<
    Requirement: 1 Balance
    Power: 2/5
    Spin: 0/5
    Angle: 2.5/5
    After effect: Pushes the opponent back slightly
    supercaptor's comments: It's not that good. For when you get it, you need
    something better, so no.
    
    >Flashflop Shot<
    Requirement: 3 Balance
    Power: 0/5 (Drop Shot)
    Spin: 1.5/5 (Slice)
    Angle: 4/5
    After effect: Traps opponent in a bright yellow circle
    supercaptor's comments: Not good for actually winning on the power shot (Unless
    you're playing on clay court), but can slow down your opponent so you can
    finish them off next hit.
    
    >Tackle Shot<
    Requirement: 1 Body
    Power: 4/5
    Spin: 0/5
    Angle: 2.5/5
    After effect: Greatly pushes back the opponent.
    supercaptor's comments: Very good Lvl 1 shot, is powerful and accurate.
    
    >Stunner Shot<
    Requirement: 3 Body
    Power: 4/5
    Spin: 0/5
    Angle: 4/5
    After effect: Pushes back the opponent while stunning him/her
    supercaptor's comments: Very good shot. Can be used to beat the whole game.
    
    >Flying Shot<
    Requirement: 4 Muscle, 2 Jump
    Power: 4/5
    Spin: 0/5
    Angle: 2/5
    After effect: Greatly pushes back the opponent.
    supercaptor's comments: For something that's not basic (one type of PS skills
    only), this one is not good. Can hardly get it past your opponent even though
    it is powerful. Good thing is that you can activate this shot from further-than
    -every-other-shot away.
    
    >Gyro Shot<
    Requirement: 5 Spin, 4 Balance
    Power: 1/5 (Lob Shot)
    Spin: 0/5
    Angle: 2/5
    After effect: Opponent spins around uncontrollably
    supercaptor's comments: This shot is terrible. You cannot hit winners with this
    shot unless you are versing someone like Luigi who runs straight to the net. It
    is good doubles, however, because lobs are godly in doubles.
    
    >Dragon Shot<
    Requirement: 5 Muscle, 2 Body
    Power: 4.5/5
    Spin: 3/5 (Top Spin)
    Angle: 4/5
    After effect: Pushes the opponent into corner.
    supercaptor's comments: This is one of my favourite shots. It's so useful and
    powerful. It is very fast and has a great after effect. One of the best shots
    in the game, this is.
    
    >Sonic Shot<
    Requirement: 3 ESP, 6 Spin
    Power: 4/5
    Spin: 4/5 (Slice)
    Angle: 3/5
    After effect: Pushes back the opponent while stunning him/her
    supercaptor's comments: This shot is pretty good. It can be so fast that you
    can't see it. However, this shot is very unreliable because it can be very slow
    and if you and your opponent are both at the net, it becomes a crappy little
    lob that your opponent can just smash back and win, and this is problem for all
    slice power shots.
    
    >Blizzard Shot<
    Requirement: 5 Speed, 6 Response, 7 Spin
    Power: 4.5/5
    Spin: 0/5
    Angle: 4.5/5
    After effect: Encases opponent in ice
    supercaptor's comments: Another excellent shot. It is fast and accurate.
    PERIOD.
    
    >Summoner Shot<
    Requirement: 7 Response, 7 Muscle, 5 Balance
    Power: 4/5
    Spin: 4.5/5 (Slice)
    Angle: 3.5/5
    After effect: Traps opponent in a circle
    supercaptor's comments: Awesome. I can't get enough of this shot. It's such a
    cool shot while being awesome at the same time. It has very good spin, angle
    and power.
    
    >Specter Shot<
    Requirement: 6 ESP, 8 Spin, 6 Balance
    Power: 5/5
    Spin: 3.5/5
    Angle: 3.5/5
    After effect: Pushes back the opponent while stunning him/her
    supercaptor's comments: The best shot in the game due to its insane speed. It
    is so fast that its hard to see it. WOW.
    
    >Volcano Shot<
    Requirement: 10 Jump, 10 Muscle, 10 Balance, 10 Body
    Power: 2/5 (Lob shot)
    Spin: 0/5
    Angle: 2/5
    After effect: Pushes the opponent into corner.
    supercaptor's comments: Crap. This is a crappy shot for a finale shot. It is
    just a lob shot that cannot win points!! It's good for doubles, but not in
    singles.
    
    ==Defensive Power Shots==
    
    >Running Save<
    Requirement: 1 Speed
    Power: 1/5
    Spin: 2/5 (Slice)
    Angle: 1/5
    Reach: 2/5
    supercaptor's comments: Even for a starter save, this is still pretty crap. You
    would do better to get 250 more Experience points for Superswift Save.
    
    >Superswift Save<
    Requirement: 3 Speed
    Power: 1.5/5
    Spin: 2/5 (Slice)
    Angle: 1.5/5
    Reach: 3.5/5
    supercaptor's comments: Now this is okay. It is a decent save, but still quite
    at the bottom.
    
    >Lunging Save<
    Requirement: 1 Jump
    Power: 1.5/5
    Spin: 1/5 (Top Spin)
    Angle: 2/5
    Reach: 1/5
    supercaptor's comments: This is not too bad, but the reach is terrible.
    
    >High-Jump Save<
    Requirement: 3 Jump
    Power: 2.5/5
    Spin: 1/5 (Top Spin)
    Angle: 3/5
    Reach: 3/5
    supercaptor's comments: This is very good for a net player, but not suitable
    for a base line player. Why?? When you are at the net this shot can hit winners
    but at the base line, it is useless.
    
    >Quick Save<
    Requirement: 1 Response
    Power: 1/5
    Spin: 0.5/5 (Top Spin)
    Angle: 2/5
    Reach: 2/5
    supercaptor's comments: I would prefer this to Running Save any day. It is very
    effective for a starter shot.
    
    >Quick-Step Save<
    Requirement: 3 Response
    Power: 2.5/5
    Spin: 0.5/5 (Top Spin)
    Angle: 3/5
    Reach: 4/5
    supercaptor's comments: An awesome save for Island Open. It can get back most
    shots and has decent power on it.
    
    >Hand-Power Shot<
    Requirement: 1 ESP
    Power: 0.5/5
    Spin: 0.5/5 (Whatever spin the last hit was used)
    Angle: 1.5/5
    Reach: 2/5
    supercaptor's comments: I liked it for a while, but now I hate it because it is
    crap. It has practically NO power at all.
    
    >Psychic Save<
    Requirement: 3 ESP
    Power: 2/5
    Spin: 0/5
    Angle: 1.5/5
    Reach: 4/5
    supercaptor's comments: Still not much power, but at least it's a lot better
    with the reach.
    
    >Typhoon Save<
    Requirement: 4 Jump, 2 Spin
    Power: 2.5/5
    Spin: 3.5/5 (Top spin)
    Angle: 3/5
    Reach: 3.5/5
    supercaptor's comments: This is a really nice save, but the problem is that you
    save the ball, the opponent can really easily win with this shot because of its
    spinning back at the opponent.
    
    >Bubble Save<
    Requirement: 3 Speed, 4 Spin
    Power: 3/5
    Spin: 3/5 (Slice)
    Angle: 3.5/5
    Reach: 3.5/5
    supercaptor's comments: A really nice save again, but sometimes it can be so
    weak (It usually is quite strong) that it doesn't even make it over the net.
    These good save always have to have loopholes.
    
    >Illusory Save<
    Requirement: 4 Speed, 4 Response
    Power: 3/5
    Spin: 3/5 (Slice)
    Angle: 3/5
    Reach: 4/5
    supercaptor's comments: A darn effective save. It can get a lot of balls back.
    However, once you see Falcon-Dive Save, kiss this one goodbye.
    
    >Spider Save<
    Requirement: 3 Response, 4 Balance
    Power: 3.5/5
    Spin: 2/5 (Top Spin)
    Angle: 2.5/5
    Reach: 2.5/5
    supercaptor's comments: I like this save because it is powerful. However, it
    has crapstatic reach. Bleaugh.
    
    >Falcon-Dive Save<
    Requirement: 5 Response, 5 ESP
    Power: 3/5
    Spin: 5/5 (Top Spin)
    Angle: 3.5/5
    Reach: 5/5
    supercaptor's comments: I love this save, it's one of the best. It has awesome
    reach and darn good power. Use this when you get it.
    
    >Shark-Bite Save<
    Requirement: 8 Speed, 8 Response, 4 Body
    Power: 4.5/5
    Spin: 0/5
    Angle: 3/5
    Reach: 5/5
    supercaptor's comments: This competes with Falcon Dive to be the best shot. The
    thing I don't like about this shot is that you won't know where you are because
    you can't see the court.
    
    >Shooting Star Save<
    Requirement: 10 Response, 10 Jump, 10 ESP
    Power: 5/5
    Spin: 0/5
    Angle: 4/5
    Reach: 5/5
    supercaptor's comments: The fastest save in the game!!! This is an awesome
    save and should be used.
    
    >Rainbow Save<
    Requirement: 10 Speed, 10ESP, 10 Spin, 8 Balance
    Power: 1/5 (Drop shot)
    Spin: 3/5
    Angle: 4/5
    Reach: 5/5
    supercaptor's comments: Besides the crappy power of the shot (I hate that), the
    shot is okay.
    
    ::Tips::
    1. Wait for the opponent to execute their power shot first when you both have a
    power shot ready to go.
    2. Keep hitting the ball to one direction, then the opponent would get confused
    if you suddenly change direction.
    3. Cross-court power shots can work very well.
    4. Lob when playing doubles. The AI won't know what to do!
    5. When hitting power-shots, hit the ball at the highest point if possible.
    That is when the ball will travel the fastest.
